ATTICA, Ohio – Chris Andrews and his Jay Kiser Racing team have been fast all season but have had terrible luck. The Sandusky, Ohio driver put it all together Friday, Sept. 10 at Attica Raceway Park, taking the lead with just three laps to go and driving to the 410 sprint win on Kistler Racing Products/Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating presents the Mark Keegan Classic Championship Night.

Shreve, Ohio’s Trey Jacobs earned the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints track title, joining his dad, Dean who won the Attica championship in 2011.

“It’s really cool. We lucked out to have that big of a point lead coming into the final night because really that was probably the worst night we’ve had all year. We weren’t really planning on doing the point deal but then we get part way through the year and we’re out front so I had to stick it out. It’s nice to claim a track championship at a place that most would consider the premiere weekly track in Ohio. Something to build off us and something to help this team out a little bit,” said Jacobs.

Andrews, a two time Attica champion, earned his 10th career victory in the 410 sprint division and it was worth $7,000 thanks to added money from the Baumann Auto Group.

“I didn’t get too excited. Stuart (Brubaker) gets going there and he gets excited early and Caleb (Griffith)…we were pretty equal. I couldn’t get too excited…every time he and I get around each other it’s like we run the tires off…I’ve done it a few times and I’ve learned from it. The car was good and the Kistler motor was running strong, Jay, Glenn and Jerry had the car great and we finally got a win. A lot of the season just wasn’t meant to be but we put it all together tonight,” said Andrews beside his Best Performance, Jimmy Bukket’s, Automatic Fire Protection, NAPA of Bryan, Shellukes, Kistler Racing Products, BH41, Burdue Insurance, American Drain Solutions, Berryman Shocks, Keizer Wheels, Fremont Fence, Vantage Branding, C Dub Designs backed #23.

In the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints Fremont’s Paul Weaver, a five time track champion, dominated the feature, winning by nearly six seconds for his 8th victory of 2021 at Attica. He now has 64 career wins for the division to lead all drivers in the history of the track. He has 13 total feature wins in 2021, having five at Fremont Speedway as well.

“It’s easy to start up front…it’s a world of difference here. I kept the momentum up top…I got a little tight but that was probably a good thing and not get loose and hanging out and not going forward,” said Weaver beside his B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Adkins Motorsports, Weaver Performance backed #1W.

Fremont’s Jamie Miller came into the night with such a huge point lead all he had to do was take the green and he wrapped up his third career Attica championship. It was a good thing too as he was involved in an early race crash, sidelining him from the feature. In fact, coming into the final two nights of the year Miller hadn’t finished outside of the top four, but the past two weeks saw an 11th and a 22nd place finishes.

“I must have did this just right. I had a big enough lead coming in all I needed to do was take a green flag and it was in the bag. The car was actually good tonight we just didn’t have any speed and we don’t know why. We finally hit back on it in the feature and I tangled with a guy spinning it out and it ended the evening. We probably could have snuck a top five out of this,” said Miller.

Andrews and Harli White brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 sprint A-main with Andrews fending off White for the lead with Stuart Brubaker, Caleb Griffith, RJ Jacobs and Craig Mintz in tow. With two laps in Jacobs and Cole Macedo tangled ending their night. On the restart Brubaker made a two-for-one pass to take the lead over Andrews, White and Griffith.

Brubaker, who has a win at Attica in 2021, pulled away while Andrews and Griffith battled for second with White holding off Mintz for fourth. By lap 10 Andrews began to reel in Brubaker but in heavy lapped traffic it was Griffith who stole second to chase down Brubaker. Brubaker’s great run ended on lap 17 when he cut a tire, giving the lead to Griffith over Andrews, Mintz and White.

For the next two laps the top three battled one another to the delight of the fans. With eight laps to go Griffith had secured the top spot and pulled away slightly from Andrews, Mintz, Greg Wilson and White. With four laps to go the leaders encountered two lapped cars that were racing side by side. Andrews used the situation to his advantage and drove under Griffith for the lead coming to complete lap 27.

Andrews held off a last ditch slider from Griffith for the win with Mintz, Wilson and White rounding out the top five.

Weaver battled with Zeth Sabo the first five laps of the 305 A-main before pulling away. A couple of early race cautions kept the field close, but after the final yellow flew on lap 9, Weaver checked out, winning by 5.7 seconds. A good battle ensued most of the race for second involving Sabo and Logan Riehl. Sabo got by Riehl coming to the checkers for second with Matt Foos and Mike Keegan rounding out the top five.
